Slingshot at The Royal Room


Two great bands featuring new Sephardic Jewish music and spontaneous compositions! SOFIE SALONIKA is a hybrid group delving into Sephardic, Spanish, Turkish and Arabic songs, presenting concerts filled with compelling new interpretations on traditional works, and spicy, original Middle Eastern and Balkan-inspired compositions with hints of Bluegrass, Jazz and Nocturnal Funk.

SLINGSHOT is a collective improvising group specializing in far flung free improvisations that aim high, led by Jessica Lurie , Heather Bentley and Beth Fleenor. This set will feature Robin Holcomb on piano; Jessica Lurie on woodwinds and electronics; Katie Down flute, glass instruments; Jonti Simon bass; and special guests!
